Starting School

Introducing your 4-year old to School

 

Our induction programme includes:

 

  • Children visiting our school for Christmas entertainment.
  • Starting school can be a stressful experience. To give the teacher the opportunity to get to know your child, arrangements are made to spend some time in school.  Children make visits with their playgroup during Activity Week in the summer term.
  • “Getting Ready for School” - a meeting for parents to find out about the school and ask questions.
  • Continuous support from staff in supporting your child in Literacy and Maths.
  • Tapestry - online learning journey for parents to see what their child has been up to in school.  Daily and weekly observations are added to Tapestry. 

 

Our feeder preschools are Little Pickles, Newent Early Years and Whippersnappers.  We also visit other preschools in the area too.  The Reception staff do yearly visits to the preschools to meet the children and join in with their daily activities.

 

Unfortunately, due to current COVID 19 restrictions, we are unable to have school tours at present.  As soon as restrictions allow, we shall be starting our school tours once again.  If you would like to discuss your child starting school, please contact the school office to arrange a phone meeting with Mr Larner.

 

The Starting School Meetings will commence after the May half term when your child has been allocated a school.  You are more than welcome to make an appointment if you wish to change schools and would like to discuss this with the team.
